Zenger Folkman Leadership Podcast Get answers to today’s toughest leadership and development problems from thought leaders Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman!

Today we will be broadcasting the keynote address presented by Dr. Jack Zenger and Dr. Joe Folkman at our Extraordinary Leadership Summit held in Park City, Utah on July 30th, 2014. Their speech is entitled “Secrets to Discovering Your Company’s Hidden Talent Pools.”

Corporate America is facing a management crisis. Sixty percent of companies face leadership shortages that impede their performance. Ten thousand baby boomers retire every day, and data predicts a 30% drop in available managers between 2009 and 2015.

Yet virtually every company has three forgotten resources that data reveals are largely untapped:

  1. Aspiring Women — they surpass men in many leadership skills
  2. Individual contributors — because they do not currently manage others, their potential is being overlooked
  3. Young managers, Gen Y – development efforts for these future leaders is beginning far too late and generally doesn’t begin until age 40

Focusing on these three forgotten groups would not only answer the talent gap, but according to scientific data would result in:

  • 4.8x higher profits
  • 70% higher engagement and productivity
  • 40% higher customer satisfaction
  • 50% less turnover

The solution is within your current organization. If you develop these forgotten groups, everyone wins.

This recording will show you how these often forgotten resources could be benefiting your organization in ways you may have completely overlooked.
